Spec MX-5 Challenge is designed as a pro driver development program with the aim of assisting drivers to learn, grow and advance in professional road racing. Virtual motorsports is quickly becoming an important rung on the driver-development ladder. We believe it is important to create a simulator racing path toward road racing, just as Spec MX-5 Challenge has established a bridge between amateur and professional racing and to that end we have created a parallel series, the Spec MX-5 SimRacing Challenge.
The Spec MX-5 SimRacing Challenge brings together current pro drivers entered in the real-life Spec MX-5 Challenge with active sim-racers for a competitive and professional simulator racing series utilizing the iRacing Motorsports simulation platform. iRacing is a subscription-based service and is one of the most popular and realistic online motorsports simulation platforms available.
More information, including schedule and how to register, can be found in the Spec MX-5 SimRacing Challenge FAQ.
